Message from the Management Board

Our minister, the Rev. Patrick O’Neill has now retired. We have many wonderful guest preachers to take the services over the next couple of months and hope to have a temporary minister in place to lead all services in the New Year. Meanwhile, we have elected an excellent search committee to seek a new settled minister. We hope to have someone in place in six months to a year’s time.
